Labor

Just wanted to give a quick update. Its 10:15 pm and I am dilated to 4 cm. I was given the fun experience of the one thing I did not anticipate..back labor. I took an epidural a bit ago. My fear was the I would labor for so long and be too exhausted to push him out, which would result in a c-section. So, I gave in and am content with it. I have been feeling pretty good ever since. I'm going to try and get some sleep in the next few hours.

Thanks for all your support and prayers. I will update as soon as stubborn boy makes his debut!

I went through back labor too, not fun. I will probably go through it again, since my back is so bad. Good Luck!

Thinking of you all day today. I guess your little man decided he was going to pick his own birthday after all! Hopefully he won't wait too much longer to make his appearance. Glad you're feeling okay with the epidural.

My thoughts and prayers to you. I've been waiting with every new blog posts to see if its time and he will be here really soon!!

Oh, I'm so glad you let us know. I've been checking all day but knew it probably wouldn't be until at least late tonight when we'd get to see the new addition. Don't feel like a failure due to the epidural--your health and well-being and the baby's are all that matters! It took me a LONG time to get over the fact that I ended up having an emergency C-section with general anesthesia when I had planned a natural childbirth but safely and happily bringing new life into the world is the aim and the reward! No award for suffering.

I've been thinking of you a lot since yesterday. I hope that by now you are holding your precious baby boy and that everything went smoothly with the delivery. If you aren't, well, then I hope he's getting ready to make a debut soon.

I had back labour and it's tough stuff.

Can't wait for the update. Good Luck.!!!

I expect he's here by now...but just wanted to say good luck (even if I am a bit late!) I didn't think I was going to have an epidural, but ended up needing to, I was so glad I did! I had a little sleep and felt so ready for our little boy when he came! x
